Passive Solutions


The latest German mixing technology combined with the finest raw materials sourced from Saudi Arabia create the perfect system for Middle Eastern conditions. ICON provides the complete Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS) with all of its components in an energy saving and consumption solution for the Middle East’s harsh climates

EIFS – Exterior Insulation and Finishing System

General class of non-load bearing building cladding systems that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant, finished surface
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), Rockwool, or Natural Cork Boards can be fixed for insulation
Durability, Design Flexibility, and better aesthetics
Moisture & Fire Control
Reduce air infiltration by as much as 55% compared to standard methods
Styro Fix
Insulation Board
Mechanical Anchor
Mesh Fix
Reinforcement Mesh
Final Finish Coat

Our System Standards

icon standards


Designed as per ETAG004
icon standards (1)

ASTM E2570

Approved as per ASTM E2570
icon standards (1)


Approved as per ASTM E84 fire test standards: Class A
Complies with the latest revision Kuwait Building Code and Energy Conservation Program
Designed for robustness and withstanding GCC harsh climate conditions

EIFS VS. Double Walls & AAC Blocks

No Double/AAC Wall DMC EIFS
1 Has to be covered with rendering and different layers up to the final finish Integrated system including final finish in various colors and textures
2 Only partial insulation with thermal bridging and other leaks Much better insulation without thermal bridging and with less weight
3 A relatively high-cost system Lower cost & higher efficiency
4 Longer execution time and greater effort Faster implementation and much higher productivity
5 Approximate U value of 0.920 Approximate U Value of 0.300
6 Cracks are frequent Cementitious water based materials makes the system hydrophobic and guarantees no peeling off over building’s life span
7 No sound cancellation Partial sound cancellation
8 Usually no guarantees Provided 10 years guarantee
